UntitledAt the Foundation Fighting Blindness (FFB) we are motivated by a singular goal: develop new treatments for blindness and vision loss. This goal fuels all of the research that we fund and everything that we do! Vision Quest is the FFB’s educational program that we share with patients and families coast to coast.

This event will feature a panel discussion of leading vision scientists and clinicians who will share their insights about the Race to Restore Sight. Who is winning the race? What can the FFB do to take us across the finish line faster? The program will include:
